Have you tried copying the font files (ttf and whatever else you have with the font name) to the \windows\fonts directory?  This is the way that I prefer in 98.
Keep in mind that the number of fonts you have affects system performance (at least in 95/98).

Does WindowsME in Arabic support bi-directional text rendering? Becuase if not the Malayam font is probably wrongly marked. Where did you get the font from?

I have just done the same. There were two fonts in the zip file. I'm currently on a 95 machine. I'll look into this tomorrow.

A question: When you point your browser (IE 5?) at malayam.sify.com does it display all the text in the correct font? If so it would imply that the font "MLW-TTRevathi" is correctly installed.

I have also downloaded the font and installed it ok.

The point is that you must start ControlPanel in Settings, double click Fonts and then select File/Install Font.

I have not been able to do this in Arabic since I can't read Arabic. But the two fonts in the zip file get installed and work properly.

It is NOT enough to just copy them into the windows font directory. They must be installed via the install program. You should also get this information via the Help, and perhaps you should send an E-Mail to the site to tell them that the information is incorect.

Hope that helps.
